Hey everyone. So after a long cruise yesterday, when i arrived at my destination i was parked up against a house. Windows were down and I noticed a ticking sound and recorded it. It doesn't quite sound like some of the more serious typewriter ticks out there however there was definitely some ticking. Video doesn't really do it justice. It's a 2020 Bullitt with less than 2k miles and i have already changed the oil and put in synthetic 5W-30. Feedback/insight would be appreciated.

That's the tick right there, unfortunately. Open the hood and see if it's not the throttle body, by any chance, but doesn't sound like it. Put your ear next to the TB, and you'd know right away. Otherwise, the only fix is reportedly using an additive called 'Ceratec'. Oh, another supposed fix is to top off oil level all the way to the top, which is the upper little hole in the dip stick. Try that too. Good luck, and report back.

Thanks. I appreciate the insight. I will check the TB but I doubt it’s that as well. I did order some Ceratec yesterday and will give it a shot. Will upload video after application confirming success or failure.

Don’t sweat it as they all will tick at some point.

Not to worry, the Ceratec will calm it down.

sounds like my tick. My tick has only been that loud on about 3-4 occasions, usually not audible, so I consider myself lucky.

Ok so Ceratec was total success. I went by the book and the results are great. Over time we will see if the tick comes back however for at least a day, I am happy.

I edited a few clips together that document my journey from tick discovery to resolution.

You wasted 30 bucks for nothing.
